SolidCAM – Brochure Overview

www solidcam com 29 Multiblade Machining The Multiblade machining operation easily handles impellers and bladed disks, with multiple strategies to efficiently rough and finish each part of these complex shapes, which are being used in many industries Port Machining With this 5X operation you can machine intake and exhaust ducts as well as inlets or outlets of pumps, in castings or steel blocks with tapered lollipop tools Roughing and finishing operations can be quickly and easily defined and reliably simulated with complete collision control for the entire tool and holder Contour 5-Axis Machining The Contour 5-Axis machining strategy tilts the tool along a chained 3D profile drive curve, while aligning the tool axis according to defined tilt lines, making it ideal for generating 5-axis toolpath for deburring and trimming SWARF Machining With SWARF machining, the tool is tilted over to cut with its lateral surface SWARF cutting utilizes the entire cutting length of the tool, resulting in better surface quality and shorter machining time Multi-Axis Drilling The Multi-Axis Drilling operation uses SolidCAM’s automatic hole recognition and then performs drilling, tapping or boring cycles, at any hole direction, easily and quickly All the advanced linking, tilting and collision avoidance strategies are available in this operation Convert HSM to Sim. 5-Axis The Convert HSM to Sim 5-Axis milling operation converts HSM 3D toolpaths to full 5-Axis collision-protected toolpaths This maintains optimum contact point between the tool and the part, enabling the use of shorter tools for more stability and rigidity Screw Machining This operation generates 4-Axis rotary roughing and finishing toolpath for screws using bull nose, ball nose or flat end mills SolidCAM – The Solid Platform for Manufacturing
